Host a Diversity Workshop

Host A Diversity Workshop

OUDC has a successful track record of providing prejudice awareness and reduction workshops for people of all ages.  Please consider bringing our young leaders to your house of worship, school or community group to speak about their experiences or to lead a diversity workshop on a wide variety of topics. With the collaboration and input of the requester, workshops are student-developed and student-led. 

To request a workshop, please fill out and submit the Community Workshop Request Form.

  • Forms should be submitted at least one (1) month before the preferred date of the workshop.
  • A staff member from Operation Understanding DC will respond to your request within one week.
  • We try our best to accommodate everyone’s request and recognize that we have a high level of interest in our work. Filling out this form is not a guarantee that Operation Understanding DC is available or able to lead your workshop. Unfortunately, some requests cannot be accommodated.

* Workshops are student-developed and led with the support of our program director.

**In addition to our very capable and talented students, we have a vast network of alums and a small but dedicated staff who are available to lead workshops. If this is something you are interested in, please let us know in the request form.
